Managing Forests within a Watershed: The Importance of Stewardship
Source: Journal of Forestry, Volume 99, Number 8, 1 August 2001 , pp. 4-10(7)
Publisher: Society of American Foresters
Abstract:Four years after its inception an outreach campaign promoting forest stewardship in south-central Connecticut was carefully evaluated. Results emphasize that efforts may be directed to promoting a simpler and more autonomous form of resource inventory and forest stewardship planning than many forestry specialists might originally envision. Evaluation methods used to measure the success of outreach efforts should recognize a continuum of possible outcomes, not simply the ideal.
